Women Refuse

Jewish And Palestinian Women, Citizens Of Israel

GUSH SHALOM - pob 3322, Tel-Aviv 61033 -

Women Refuse

We, Jewish and Palestinian women, citizens of Israel oppose the occupation of the Palestinian people and refuse to take part in any of its destructive aspects.

We refuse to live as enemies We refuse to fulfil the roles that women are expected to fulfill during wartime We refuse to pay the economic and social price of the occupation We refuse to be ignorant and to succumb to terrorizing and silencing We refuse to raise children to war, poverty and oppression We refuse to remain silent

A collective refusal of women can change reality. A feminine refusal means an alternative voice and a language opposed to the language of power.

Join us at our refusal tent, June 16-21, 10.00 a.m to 22.00 p.m, at the Charles Chlor park in Tel Aviv, and let us shape together the forms of our refusal.

Join your voice to that of Women Refuse.
